From EnjoyingTea.com

The Alishan Oolong is a superior high mountain oolong tea from Formosa (Taiwan). Lightly oxidized, it has a wonderfully creamy texture and rich floral taste with a delicate sweetness. This tea is grown on the Ali Mountain at the elevation of 1000 meters. The mountainsides are covered with fog or clouds, which are ideal for growing Oolong.

I started with a short steep of 30 seconds, and moved on to a minute or so for the next ones. The first two steepings were unremarkable, but the third yielded a more floral fragrance with a hint of buttery aftertaste. I steeped it five times, and the flavor opened up with subsequent steepings, with the best being the fourth.

Enjoyable, affordable, but nothing too special.

Newcomers to oolong, try this one. I am never tempted to add anything but water. Fine oolongs are not costly when: 1st steep 3-4 min, 2nd 3-4 min, 3rd 5-6 min, 4th 6-7 min, 5th 8-10 min. New flavors at each stage. You need a large infuser, preferably one in which the leaves can be kept between uses. So far, no spoilage — boiling water kills microorganisms.
